Stockton Social Security Disability Resources

When you apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits in Stockton, CA, it’s not unusual for several months to pass prior to your initial application being reviewed and only about 59% are approved upon the initial review. Most people must request a second review. If denied on the second review, you’ll need to file an appeal and your case will be scheduled for a hearing with an administrative law judge. It can take anywhere from six months to more than a year before all reviews and appeals are processed.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires individuals who receive SSD to be unable to work for a year or more as a result of permanent or long-term disability. To put in an application for Stockton disability benefits, you’ll need to call the SSA at (800)772-1213 or set up an appointment to complete the application at your local SSA field office. If you need help finding your local office, call the main SSA phone number listed above, or visit the online SSA Office Locator.

You submit your application for Stockton disability benefits to your local office where it’s reviewed for completeness. It’s then forwarded on to the Disability Determination Services office where the medical documentation of your disability will be reviewed under SSA guidelines to determine eligibility.

Stockton Supplemental Security Benefits

Those who receive Stockton disability benefits are sometimes eligible for other benefits as well. These may include Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid and Medicare. SSI is most often issued to those who need residential care or other similar services, and individuals who need additional income to pay for everyday living expenses. Medicaid – which is called Medi-Cal in California – and Medicare both pay for medical-related expenses. To learn more about SSI, contact the Stockton SSA Office at:

Your Stockton Social Security Disability Claim

An application for Stockton disability benefits containing all the appropriate medical documentation has a greater chance of being approved, but there is nothing that ensures you’ll be found eligible. A Stockton Social Security lawyer can greatly increase your chances though. If you’re concerned about paying for legal services from a Stockton Social Security lawyer, don’t be. He or she is only paid if you’re approved for benefits, at which point the lawyer would receive 25% (up to a max of $6,000) of the retroactive benefits you’re paid at the start of your SSD.
